The Week against Menstrual Stigma and Poverty in Kosovo

QIKA has been organizing a campaign against menstrual stigma and poverty since 2021. The two key activities include the publication of articles relating to menstrual health and the distribution of menstrual products in public spaces. This year we have started an online petition to remove the VAT from menstrual products, which in Kosovo is 18%. The petition also includes a video invitation with many feminist activists. This year we also plan to distribute these products in public schools, university campuses, student dorms, coffee shops etc. As a concluding activity QIKA will launch its research on reproductive health in Kosovo in the form of discussion.
